The recently married reality TV star said that it is her mother, Kris Jenner, who taught her she could 'have it all' if she just got good at prioritising.

'You know [my mom] works hard. She taught us that if you work hard, it's just all about prioritising.'

But the 33-year-old admitted that sometimes even she finds it tough to keep things together, revealing: 'There are so many times when I just didn't want to get up and work on something and I just wanted to be at home with my baby, but, for me - and I think I can speak for my sisters - it makes us feel good when we are out working.'

And Kim admitted that since the arrival of baby North West last year, her priorities have shifted significantly.

'Now that I'm married, I would so much rather spend time with my husband, my family and my baby than run around the world working for other people.'

Kim was responding to the claims made my PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi that women cannot have it all, and that anyone who thinks they can is 'pretending.'

Gwyneth Paltrow also recently caused controversy with her statements that mothers with 'ordinary' jobs have it much easier than Hollywood actresses, adding that the routine makes it simpler for them to organise their daily lives.
